Temporary Electrical Outage – Davis Hall, Life Science Building, and University Hall

In order to complete further upgrades to the campus electrical system, a temporary electrical outage for Davis Hall, the Life Science Building, and University Hall will be required.  The Office of Facilities Management intends to schedule this outage for Saturday, August 19th, 2017, beginning at 8:00 a.m. lasting until approximately 12:00 noon.  The buildings’ emergency generators will remain operational during this outage to support egress lighting, life safety, and research activities only.  Unless pre-arranged, no one will be allowed in the buildings without an escort from Facilities Management and/or the Police Department during this outage.
